Comments for Marvel Comic’s new Iron Man is a 15-year-old African-American girl

    I really hate the name “Riri Williams”. Such a stereotypical ghetto name. Just because the character is does not mean she had to have a straight up hood name.

    Besides that, I’m tired of the comic world changing the race of some of our most iconic heroes, to give diversity. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for diversity, but do it by creating original heroes. Not change the race of the heroes we already have.

    And anyone reading this post that’s wondering, I’m an African American male.

      There are “ghetto” people with “ghetto” names out there, why not have a superhero THEY can relate to. Kudos to Marvel for thinking outside the box!!!??

    Her hair is all wrong. The bare midriff is not superhero costume style, but I guess a plunging neckline won’t work with the Iron Man energy module. They are trying to evoke the 1970s with this graphic.

    Leave out comics alone.

    CJ: I agree with you.

    Like others said, I’m all for change and diversity whether it’s sex, race, and any other stuff but leave the original heroes alone. If u want black characters more prominent give better story archs like with Luke cage or storm or falcon. Why change characters just to try and be politically correct. Hispanic spiderman, female thor (despite thor being his actual name and not a status ), asian hulk,

    I don’t know why they can’t make new characters instead of making jokes out of the old ones. Jane Porter is Thor, idiocy. A black girl as Iron Man, she is not a man so thats ignorant. I have been reading comics my whole life and hate the changes. Next we should rewrite the history books and make George Washington a black female. I am saying bye to Marvel, you are destroying yourselves and will eventually lose all your fans.
